17 Fixed:
18
19 - Impose deterministic order on cpp-definition options.
20 Heretofore, ExtUtils::CBuilder put cpp-definition options
21 into the cc command line in non-deterministic order. This
22 produced noise when diffing build logs.
23 Make this order deterministic. (RT #124106)
24
25 Added:
26
27 - Add tests for ascii-betical order in t/04-base.t.

278
279 - Added tests for have_compiler
280
281 - Skips tests that need a compiler if have_compiler is false

285
2860.25 - Fri Jun 26 16:18:13 EDT 2009
287
288 - Slight diagnostic improvements in link.t
289
2900.24_01 - Sun Mar 8 14:50:10 2009
291
292 - On Windows, don't generate "mt" command when CRT is statically
293 linked. [Jan Dubois]
294
295 - On Cygwin, examine $Config{useshrplib} to see whether we're
296 supposed to be linking with a shared perl library or not. [Reini
297 Urban]
298
299 - In link_executable() on Cygwin, trust $Config{ld} rather than using
300 $Config{cc} for linking. [Reini Urban]
301

303
3040.24 - Fri Aug 15 22:01:48 2008

309 CBuilder's handling of external libraries when linking on VMS."
310 [Craig Berry]
311
3120.23 - Sat Apr 19 22:28:03 2008
313
314 - Fixed some problems (some old, some new) with Strawberry Perl on
315 Windows. [Alberto Simo~es]
316
317 - Will now install in the core perl lib directory when the user's
318 perl is new enough to have us in core. [Yi Ma Mao]
319
3200.22 - Fri Feb 8 21:52:21 2008
321
322 - Replaced the split_like_shell() method on Windows with a
323 near-no-op, which is probably more correct and has the benefit of
324 not messing up UNC paths. [John R. LoVerso, see
325 http://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=26545]
326
327 - Fixed extra_compiler_flags on Windows, they were being
328 ignored. [Robert May]
329
3300.21 - Tue Oct 30 06:46:01 2007
331
332 - Clean up perl_src path using Cwd::realpath(). Only affects usage
333 as part of the perl core.
334
335 - Protect $., $@, $!, $^E, and $? from any clobbering that might
336 occur in our DESTROY method. [Zefram]
337
338 - From bleadperl, a patch to clean up debug symbol files (.pdb for
339 VC++, .tds for BCC) when running have_compiler(). [Steve Hay &
340 Steve Peters]
341
3420.19 - Sun May 13 14:29:18 2007
343
344 - When building as part of the perl core (so this is irrelevant for
345 people downloading from CPAN) we now try a little harder to find
346 the perl sources. [Jos Boumans]
347
348 - Fixed a part of the manifest thingy that got broken on 64-bit
349 Windows platforms in version 0.18. [Steve Hay, Jan Dubois]
350
3510.18 - Mon Mar 26 21:29:09 2007
352
353 - Various OS/2 fixes:
354 + Put .LIB file near .DEF file
355 + Got library-file building working better
356 + Handled libperl_overrides better
357 [Ilya Zakharevich]
358
359 - On Windows: embed manifest files in DLLs built with Module-Build
360 when using VC8. [Steve Hay]
361
362 - Added a workaround for a config error on dec_osf: the linker is
363 $Config{cc}, not $Config{ld}. [Jarkko Hietaniemi]
364
365 - Borland's compiler "response files" will not pass through macro
366 definitions that contain quotes. The quotes get stripped and there
367 seems to be no way to escape them. So we leave macros on the
368 command line. [Randy W. Sims]
369
3700.18 Sat Mar 25 13:35:47 CST 2006
371
372 - Yet more fixes for arg_defines() on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and John
373 E. Malmberg]
374
3750.17 Wed Mar 15 22:46:15 CST 2006
376
377 - When we're being run from an uninstalled perl distribution
378 (e.g. one that's in the process of being built and tested), we
379 search for perl first in the current working directory. [Randy
380 Sims]
381
382 - More fixing of the arg_defines() method on VMS. [Craig A. Berry and
383 John E. Malmberg]
384
3850.16 Mon Mar 13 17:08:21 CST 2006
386
387 - Fix quoting of command line arguments on Windows. [Yitzchak
388 Scott-Thoennes]
389
390 - Provided a custom arg_defines() on VMS that does essentially the
391 same thing for /define that version 0.14 did for /include. [Craig
392 A. Berry]
393
394 - Documented the existing 'quiet' parameter, which silences the
395 printing of system() commands. [Suggested by Yitzchak
396 Scott-Thoennes]
397
3980.15 Mon Oct 3 17:10:32 CDT 2005
399
400 - Several OS/2 fixes have been made, including: 1) adding the
401 necessary version string to DLLs, 2) passing the executable's name
402 to 'ldopts' without the .exe extension, 3) avoiding calling 'env'
403 via the 'shrpenv' thingy, since it triggers a fork() bug. [Ilya
404 Zakharevich]
405
406 - Integrate a couple cleanup-related changes from bleadperl that
407 somehow never got into this copy. [Steve Hay]
408
409 - Added a new 'defines' parameter to compile(), which gives a
a9ccbcd7 410 platform-independent way to specify various -Dfoo=bar (or the
71b9be80
DG
411 equivalent) compiler defines. [Randy W. Sims]
412
4130.14 Mon Sep 19 13:40:37 CDT 2005
414
415 - Several fixes have been made for VMS, including: 1) there can only
416 be one /include qualifier, so merge multiple /includes into one; 2)
417 make sure the executable is named the same way that dynaloader will
418 look for it; 3) make sure the option files for the exported symbols
419 and the PERLSHR image are passed properly to the linker. [John
420 E. Malmberg]
421
4220.13 Wed Aug 24 20:05:59 CDT 2005
423
424 - Several temporary files weren't being cleaned up during testing,
425 because the 'cleanup' mechanism was never properly implemented.
426 This is now fixed. [Steve Hay]
427
4280.12 Mon May 30 16:40:10 CDT 2005
429
430 - In order to integrate into the perl core, patches were contributed
431 that a) put a $VERSION variable in each .pm file, b) add a 'quiet'
432 parameter to new() to shut up some of the command-echoing, c)
433 checks for the perl source headers in the CORE/ directory in the
434 perl source tree, not in the post-installation location, and d)
435 adjusts the CWD when running the regression tests under the perl
436 core. [Yitzchak Scott-Thoennes]
437
438 - Various parts of the code were looking for the CORE/ directory in
439 $Config{archlib}, $Config{installarchlib}, and $Config{archlibexp}.
440 Only the latter is correct, so we use that everywhere now.
441 [Curt Tilmes]
442
443 - For Unix-ish platforms, link_executable() will now prefer
444 $Config{cc} to $Config{ld}, because that typically works
445 better. [Jarkko Hietaniemi and H.Merijn Brand]
446
447 - Prelinking (invoking ExtUtils::Mksymlists to create options-files)
448 is now only done when we're building dynamic libraries. [Yitzchak
449 Scott-Thoennes]
450
4510.11 Tue Apr 5 20:58:41 CDT 2005
452
453 - Added a licensing statement to CBuilder.pm. [Spotted by Chip
454 Salzenberg]
455
4560.10 Mon Mar 14 20:18:19 CST 2005
457
458 - Split out a few simple routines that format how compile switches
459 are formatted, so that we can override them for platforms like VMS
460 where they're very different.
461
462 - Fix compile() and link() on VMS. [Help from Michael Schwern and
463 Peter Prymmer]
464
4650.09 Tue Feb 8 17:57:41 CST 2005
466
467 - Fixed a broken link_executable() method on cygwin - it now uses
468 'gcc' instead of $Config{ld} for the linking, because the latter is
469 actually a shell script which calls a perl script which calls gcc
470 in a way that only works for creating shared libraries, not
471 executables.
472
4730.08 Tue Jan 18 21:54:11 CST 2005
474
475 - Fixed a testing error in which I had the prototype wrong for the
476 main() function. [Jose Pedro Oliveira]
477
4780.07 Wed Jan 12 21:50:34 CST 2005
479
480 - Added the link_executable() method, which provides the ability to
481 create standalone executables. This is NOT yet implemented on
482 Windows, and therefore the tests for it are skipped on Win32.
483 [Alberto Manuel Brandao Simoes]
484
485 - Integrated the latest split_like_shell() for Windows from
486 Module::Build (really need to find a better home for this code...),
487 which now does a much better job of handling quotes and backslashes
488 and so on. [Randy Sims]
489
490 - Fixed a couple of Windows problems related to the output-file name
491 in link(), and some clobbering of the 'include_dirs' parameter to
492 compile(). [Randy Sims]
493
4940.06 Mon Dec 27 22:51:36 CST 2004
495
496 - Fixed a bug on Unix environments in which our work-around for
497 shell-commands like "FOO=BAR cc" (which is supposed to be turned
498 into "env FOO=BAR cc" to actually work) wasn't being called.
499
5000.05 Wed Oct 13 23:09:09 CDT 2004
501
502 - Fixed a bug in split_like_shell() in which leading whitespace was
503 creating an empty word, manifesting as something like "gcc - no
504 such file or directory" during tests. [Spotted by Warren L. Dodge]
505
506 - Incorporate another split_like_shell() fix from Module::Build.
507
5080.04 Sun Oct 10 00:31:08 CDT 2004
509
510 - Changed the split_like_shell() method to use the shellwords()
511 function from Text::ParseWords (a core module since 5.0), which
512 does a much better job than the split() we were using.
513
514
5150.03 Fri May 14 23:12:23 CDT 2004
516
517 - Fixed minor problems with the Build.PL file, the module names
518 should be quoted.
519
520 - The VMS module declared itself with the wrong package name.
521
522
5230.02 Fri Feb 20 10:17:40 CST 2004
524
525 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which compile() was
526 ignoring an 'include_dirs' argument. [Randy Sims]
527
528 - Fixed a bug in .../Platform/Windows.pm, in which output files were
529 being created in the root directory \ when they should be created
530 in the current directory. [Randy Sims]
531
532
5330.01 Mon Jan 12 08:12:35 CST 2004
534
535 - Original release, taken from Module::Build's C-building code, with
536 patching help from Randy Sims.
